I have recently change my internet provider to SKY and in the SKY package you get a free Netgear wireless router which i now use with my old Belkin wireless network adapter but i wanted to know could i still use my old Belkin wireless router as i believe the performance from it was better more stability....etc

I have tried to use the Belkin router but for some reason it does not so my network signal being sent out from the router so i cannot not connect, I find this strange as it does show my neighbours network signals and i would be able to connect to them if i had there passwords.

Before anybody starts I am by no means trying to connect to my neighbours internet i have just stated that as it might help.

Does that mean that i cant...

you have already tried and you can't...

i know SKY routers are locked so you cannot use them with any other ISP, it may be that you cannot do it the other way round either....

The Netgear Sky router is preset for sky Broadband
so i doubt if you could use another make of router
and get it to work.
